My family enjoys doing art projects as much as we love spending time outdoors. We combined these two activities during our hike by turning the forest into a sculpture studio. Our sculpture was easy and fun to make, and we liked how its abstract shapes mimicked the elegance of the bare trees around us. We left our art in place, perhaps to brighten the day for other hikers until the wind and rain return it all to the ground.
Collect fallen sticks and branches and gently wedge them between two adjacent tree trunks, then decorate the sticks with fallen leaves.
